    Field Experience

    Field Placement Process

    Placements are directly disseminated to students via Hamline email. It is your responsibility to begin your placement according to the timeline from your instructor.


    Students are asked to contact their assigned cooperating teacher within 3 days of receipt of their placement. (Failure to contact your cooperating teacher may lead to the termination of a placement.) Scheduling your specific field experience hours occurs directly between you and your cooperating teacher, although a preset lab time has been built into a few courses. Please do not change the preset lab time.


    Clinical expectations are provided to the student by the course instructor. Evaluation forms are completed by cooperating teachers, then submitted directly to the OCE and housed in each student's permanent file. Copies of these evaluations are eventually needed for incorporation into Pre-Student Teaching Assessments.


    Clinical hours not completed by finals week will result in an incomplete.
